DIY Frozen Party


DIY Frozen Party


A few weeks ago we had Finley’s Frozen themed birthday party.  If there is one I am not, it is a good crafter.  I am average at best and even that is a lofty statement.  However, a frozen themed party is quite easy and I managed (with some help from friends) to pull it off with success.
The top 2 on the left is jello that i made in ice cube trays so that they would be Kristoff’s Ice Blocks.  It worked out great while they were still in the trays but pretty much turned to mush once I got them out.  Another idea I saw was that it was in a bowl like a skating rink so it could be Eryndale at the end when they are all happily skating on it.  I also should have used extra gelatin in the jello to make it more firm but that never crossed my mind until after the fact.  
The third photo is rice krispy treats made into snowflakes.  It was a lot of sticky work and I wasn’t thrilled with how they turned out either.  I also made sugar cookies cut into snowflake shapes and decorated with blue icing and sprinkles.  They were a hit and I even forgot to take a good photo of them!!
The last photo on the right of the top row were Sven snacks.  Those were just pretzel sticks.  Easy Peasy.  The bottom row, I had Olaf’s noses which were just carrots in a cup and then we had Elsa’s Ice Punch which was just blue kool aid and water.  The last photo was the “I wanna stuff some candy in my face” buffet which had various blue candies, marshmallows, the rice krispie squares and cookies.  It was a HUGE hit amongst the kids – and the adults too.
These are the loot bags and I think (or at least hope) they turned out ok for the kids.  I bought teal bags from target which were on clearance for $.59 and snowflakes from Michaels which I then superglued together.  My friend Tara made the bookmarks which she also made for her daughter’s party.  And they are awesome!  Elsa currently keeps my page in my own books :).  I cleaned out dollarama of their blue gloves and their blue xmas ornaments which i thought were snowflakes but turned out were stars but my kids still loved them.  And to top it off I ordered the necklaces off of ebay from a mom in Washington.  Another easy peasy frozen idea.
Some random photos: We did Frozen bowling which I found at Winners for $9.99.  Pinterest had some cool ideas for Frozen themed bowling but this was easier and the girls still play it so it worked out good.  The top right is just some decor.  The top part is just a blue paper garland from the dollar store and then 3 different colours of crepe paper strung down which I think looked pretty.  
The bottom 2 photos were a great idea I found on pinterest.  It was like the bridal shower game where you can divided into groups and toilet paper one person to look like a bride except this time you would be Olaf.  It was a disaster that made my house look like a charmin plant.  TP was EVERYWHERE!! But the kids had a blast.
This was Pin The Nose On Olaf.  I had it made by a girl on my mom’s group and it was so awesome.  I loved it.  Unfortunately, Finley got her nose on the fireplace and not on Olaf and that wasn’t so awesome but this still was.  The kids really enjoyed it.
This was mostly stuff I bought at Target, the dollarstore and I think that is it.  The pink snowflakes were super cute and I really like those.
Printables thanks to Pinterest and some name place cards I made with scrapbook paper and stickers from Michaels.  
This was a craft I had the kids do when they got to the party waiting for Anna + Elsa to arrive.  It was an idea that I stole from Southcentre who did this when Anna + Elsa visited.  I bought popsicle sticks and hot glue gunned them together and bought jewel stickers from dollarama.  this worked out well and cost a total of $4. 
So hopefully this blog will show that people who are not overly craft can pull off a DIY Frozen party with great success.  I had a lot of fun doing this and my mind is already spinning with ideas for Penelope’s party in August!!!!
